Healthy Shopping Tour

WFMaking your way through the grocery store can be a challenge. There are so many temptations and options to choose from.

During our time together we will meet at the grocery store in your neighborhood and:

 

– Discuss the layout and ambiance of the store and why we are so tempted to place certain items in our carts

 

– Visit the produce section and talk about how to choose fruits and vegetables that are in season, ripe, have low levels of pesticides and lots of nutritional value

 

– Talk with the folks behind the seafood counter about wild caught versus farm raised fish and which seafood has those important omega-3 fatty acids our bodies need
